Tuina is acupuncture without needles! Most of what can be done with needles, can be done with many of the different massage techniques that Tuina offers. Tuina is ideal for people who don’t like the idea of needles. The right hand tool is used for the right job! Fingers, knuckles, palm heel of the hand, palm, forearms, elbows and sometimes a knee! Tuina techniques include gentle stroking/smoothing, stimulation of specific acupuncture points, rocking, shaking, kneading, rotating joints, plucking of tendons, gentle traction of neck, arms and legs. Tuina can be used as a relaxation therapy and also for deeper tissue work.
